Love her or hate her, it’s hard to deny that Kylie Jenner made a big splash in the beauty world this year. Amid plastic surgery rumors and even accusations that the teen photoshopped her instagram, Kylie rocked the lipliner industry’s world, when she claimed her suddenly Angelina Jolie lips were the work of makeup. Google Kylie Jenner lips and you will be flooded with blogger tutorials on how to achieve a fuller pout. I think I should stop right here to clarify that I am all for self-expression and doing your makeup how you want. What I dislike is the media constantly telling us that bigger is better (except when it comes to our waistlines). No matter how many celebrities get fillers or how many tutorials concentrate on fuller lips, I think it’s time we question this assumption. Take a look at Kylie herself and you be the judge. (PS- searching through this girl’s instagram is a nightmare. It froze my computer multiple times just trying to get to a non filled in lip)
Reasons to Stop Overdrawing Your Lips
- It’s really going to look whack when it starts to wear off
- Do you really need another step in your morning makeup routine?
- Soon there will be websites dedicated to whether or not you’ve had plastic surgery
- And then they’re going to try to dissect what lipliner you use
But hey, this is only one humble opinion and if you still want to overdraw your lips, more power to you. But I think when everyone says something’s cool/attractive/trendy, you should really step back and decide if you want to do it yourself.
So what do you think of this overdrawn lip trend? Are you like me and hoping it will go away already? Or are you totally rocking it? Are you mad at me for posting a Kardashian related article? Let me know in the comments below!
